This is footage from the UC Berkeley protest dated 11-20-2009. These kids know how to put on a respectable protest. 41 students basically occupied Wheeler Hall for 11 hours in protest of a 32% tuition hike and budget cuts. I arrived near the tail end, spoke with a student and filmed some of the protesting. The chants were,"Whose University? our University!" and my favorite, "This is what solidarity looks like." The cops came from Oakland, Berkeley and the UC Police though they still did not have enough of them...There were LOTS of students protesting outside the building. There were at least three "lines" around the building and three helicopters hoovering the whole time.I kinda felt sorry for the cops-they were dramatically outnumbered. When more cops arrive, the students cheer and when the cops advance the line-the students go wild cheering, like.."Go for it."
